Website Nuneaton and Bedworth
Nuneaton and Bedworth is a local government district with borough status, in northern Warwickshire, England, consisting of the densely populated towns of Nuneaton and Bedworth, the village of Bulkington and the green belt land in between. It has a population of just over 120,000.
As of the most recent local election, no party has overall control of the council.
The Nuneaton and Bedworth district was created on 1 April 1974 by the Local Government Act 1972. It was from the merger of the municipal borough of Nuneaton and the urban district of Bedworth (which included Bulkington). The new district was originally named just "Nuneaton"; however, objections from Bedworth residents led to it being renamed "Nuneaton and Bedworth" in 1980.
Nuneaton had gained the status of a municipal borough in 1907, and Bedworth had gained the status of an urban district in 1928. In 1938, Bulkington became part of the Bedworth Urban District. Borough status was conferred upon the new district of Nuneaton and Bedworth on 15 November 1976.
In 2008, after 34 years of Labour Party control, the ruling Labour council lost to the Conservative Party, who gained the four seats needed to gain control; the BNP also gained two seats on the new council (their first ever seats in the borough), but lost one seat to the Labour Party in a by-election held in December 2009. The Labour Party won two seats from the Conservative Party in the 2010 local elections, giving no party overall control of the council.
